Each month the Quincy Police Department provides the media with a news release regarding their Monthly Traffic Enforcement Report.  That report lists the total amount of citations issued and breaks it down even more as to just how many people were speeding, driving under the influence, driving with a revoked license and so forth. Of the 111 total citations issued between March 12th and March 20th, a nine day period, 54 were for speeding and 15 were for no seat belt usage. The next highest number was 11 and that was for people who were stopped and found not to have any insurance.  I have been looking at the charts from the Q.P.D. over the last several months and this category continues to be in double digits.  I know that money is tight and it is sure easy to just not carry insurance and still drive a vehicle.  Chance are you won’t get into a wreck. But if and when you do, who ends up paying? The person with the insurance does. This, I am afraid is becoming an epidemic in the Hannibal-Quincy area as well as across America. Insurance companies have been making uninsured motorist insurance available just for this reason. It’s unfortunate that those who do the right thing have to pay for those who don’t. When you think about the report, remember the 11 people who were found to have no insurance were initially  stopped for another reason.  Sure makes you wonder just how many drivers are out there driving without insurance doesn’t it?
